Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Aug 13, 2017 - The film is based around the uncertain fate of Uptown Art, a store struggling with the effects of gentrification taking over the historic Harlem neighborhood. The film features local Harlem talent, including actors, artists, and musicians.
Currently in their last days of filming, the festival-bound film has already created an impressive local buzz, but the work’s not over yet.
“We recorded at such high quality,” explains Dyck,” that we currently don’t have a computer powerful enough to store and edit all the files needed to complete the film.”
In the DIY spirit of the film, Uptown Art is looking to the community to help complete the venture via their Indiegogo campaign.
“If you’ve ever had any interest in getting involved with film production, or social activism, I urge you to get involved with the Uptown Art campaign”, says Burns. “Tweet, “like”, share, and please donate if you can. The underlying message of Uptown Art is how a community can pull together, so now we humbly look to you, our community, to help us spread the word.”
